Via Stubs – Are They all Bad?
By Bert Simonovich

We worry about via stubs in high-speed designs because they cause unwanted resonant frequency nulls which appear in the insertion loss plot (IL) of the channel. But are all via stubs bad?





Power-Aware Analysis Solution
By Cadence Design Systems Inc.

This paper explains how a general power-aware SI solution not only should be capable of performing SSN simulations, but also capable of creating and extracting signal and power analysis-required models and running design checks with power-aware constraints.
